[email protected], based at Northern Michigan University, empowers students, inventors, entrepreneurs, and existing businesses across the state of Michigan. The program is a platform for anyone with a product idea to explore, define, develop and bring products to market.

It’s the first place fledging inventors can go to find out if their ideas are worth pursuing, and if they are, find help to define a path forward.
